Local artist lover? look no further!
Located in the east end of beautiful Toronto, across from the Coxwell Subway Station, there’s a unique little shop called the Secret Planet Print Shop. As the name suggests, it is a functioning screen printing studio. In Addition, the store doubles as a stationery gift shop, community space, and zine library.
The shop is owned by local artist Jackie Lee. Importantly, her designs are among the works stocked here, along with other talented local artists. Without a doubt, it's stores like this one that make The Danforth one of the most interesting neighbourhoods in the city.
The secret planet print shop is truly one-of-a-kind. The unique prints offered here will transport you to outer space with the vibrant colours and landscapes used.
You are bound to find the most unique gifts to please that special someone here. Moreover, if you don't fancy art prints, they also carry printed canvas bags, shirts, patches, toques, key chains, greeting cards, enamel pins, and more!
Above all, the array of homey, handcrafted pieces carried here is very wide. For instance, the different styles of prints and colours used offer different points of view to suit different tastes.
Surprisingly, aside from running this fabulous shop, Lee even has time to produce a local arts paper called “Occasional Dispatch”.
To sum it up, the joyous atmosphere at the shop, accompanied with bright colours and great prints, will bring a smile to your face as soon as you enter. Finally, follow their Instagram to stay up-to-date on their wonderful displays and inventory. Plus, the creativity and enthusiasm they will bring to your social feeds is a bonus.
Without a doubt, you will get a kick out of visiting this secret planet!
